Other local picks to close out the 2017 MLB Draft?

Baumann is the Dolphins all-time leader in strikeouts and was a second team A-Sun selection in 2017.

The A.B. Lucas Secondary School student was selected by the Orioles with the 60th overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft on Monday. Pitcher Landon Leach was taken by the Minnesota Twins with the first pick in the second round, 37th overall.

For the second consecutive year, the Cincinnati Reds owned the 2nd overall pick in the MLB Draft. To no surprise, the Orioles showed interest in Hall's 90-93 miles per hour fastball reaching up to 95 with late arm-side run. Going by his draft slot value, that means he's sitting on somewhere around $5,303,000 and could get even more if Oakland goes all-in for him.

Warmoth went 22nd overall to the Toronto Blue Jays (sigh), and the Dodgers pounced on Kendall with the 23rd overall pick. Also, any money given to a player drafted after the tenth round in excess of $125,000 counts against the draft pool.

Bay Area was first to report about the protest march by the group Act for America, scheduled near the Santana Row Shopping Center. Sirens blared and police vehicles pulled to the scene as counter-protesters linked arms, standing side by side on the street.

They finally took a few pitchers at the end of Day 2 on Tuesday. While Finnegan hasn't been particularly effective since starring out of the Royals' bullpen during the 2014 postseason-and some of the guys listed above haven't been great either-teams are obviously still attracted to pitchers who can contribute quickly after being drafted. Keaton struck out 84 in 75 innings over 12 starts with a 5.52 ERA on the season.

Tanner Houck, RHP (#24): From the University of Missouri, Houck had a lackluster junior season after pitching very well during his freshman and sophomore years. One scout said in the lead in to the draft that McMillan was the top local high schooler available, potentially as high as a late Day 1 pick, although pro signability was thought to be an issue.

Reks hit.352/.461/.471 as a senior in 2017, with 16 doubles and three home runs in 65 games.

Williams, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound catcher out of Albany, Ga., was the No. 146 prospect in this year's draft, according to MLB.com, and was rated as 114 overall by Baseball America.
